I've been looking for royatly-free music for my dive videos. Can anyone give me some information on where to get it, recommendations for underwater or nature video and what formats that you find most useful(mp3, wav, cd, etc)?

Thanks,

Bill

Hi Bill,

There are many providers of such music that you can find on the net.

Try RoyaltyFreeMusic.com or musicbakery.com or pdinfo.com (click on Royalty Free music at the latter site).

Many of them provide either wav or MP3 format. We prefer the CD level quality but MP3 at highest sampling is quite good depending on your application.

Try http://www.freshmusic.com also.

I'm going to have a play with Sony's Cinescore software which has recently come out. You choose a theme, give it "hints", and it does the rest. Sounds far fetched but apparently it's quite good.

I used Cinescore on my last DVD project (which was also my first DVD project). I got a lot of positive comments on the generated music. I haven't dug very deep into the advanced features of the software, but on the surface it was pretty easy to use.

now it looks like it's in iTunes somewhere. Maybe that opens it up to non macs, too:
